Every year we talk about certain plastic surgery procedures becoming more desirable or less so, the same way we might talk about jeans styles or heel heights. Is it disconcerting to think that surgical changes to your face or body could be influenced by trends? Well, sure. After all, these choices are a lot more permanent than swapping skinny jeans for boot cuts. But the fact remains that plastic surgery does not exist in a vacuum — it’s influenced by the economy, by technology, and by lifestyle, and cultural shifts. So, just as there are trends in makeup or hair or denim, there too are trends in plastic surgery.
Some are spurred by innovations in surgical techniques and even fat injections: Both have helped facelifts become more natural over the years. So natural that in 2023, patients may approach them as part of a long-term maintenance plan instead of the one-and-done surgery they used to be. Another consideration for the facelift’s trend status in 2023: “Facelifts have [historically] been pretty recession-proof,” says Steven Teitelbaum, MD, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Santa Monica, California. And with a recession looming, plastic surgeons are expecting to see them among a handful of procedures eclipsing others over the coming year (more on that in a few).
